Our 9 day tour was agressive as William put it in our first conversation.. i knew to cover the entire country with what we wanted to see would be a challenge.. first we had William as he was recommended to us.. and as family is important to him he could not be with us the whole trip..but he handed us over to Peter and it was a seamless transition.. these two handled everything.. tour tickets..transportations..restaurant referrals for our food tastes.. carrying our purchases.. handling our luggage.. plus adding to an already filled schedule saying, well as long as we're here you need to see this. AMAZING ! As agressive as our tour, was thanks to these two we came home fulfilled and rested!

Claddagh tours opened our eyes to a part of Ireland only the locals get to see. We really got to see how the Irish people in the small villages live and truly express their friendly spirit. Our tour driver William Barrett was truly outstanding. Request him when you book your Claddagh tour. Put Ireland on top of your bucket list.

I have enjoyed two holidays provided by Claddagh Tours and each was excellent. The uniqueness of each holiday lay in the ability of the owner, William Barrett, to really understand what his guests wanted to see and experience and then go out of his way to ensure that this happened. Coupled with his extensive knowledge of Ireland is his genuine interest and acceptance of his guests that make holidaying with him a personal adventure of great charm.

Got to tour Ireland with Claddagh Irish Tours and our guide William Barrett.
What a fabulous trip. Got to see all the major sites on our itinerary and so many more hidden gems. All done at a pace to suit our family. Accommodation was all excellent. Great music and food every night. William is full of history and information and endless energy for our busy family. Would have loved more time to see the rest of the country.
Will definitely be booking another tour with Claddagh Irish tours

Claddagh Irish Tours is simply the best, I plan on visiting Ireland several more times, and won't book with anyone else.

William has great instincts and will investigate areas of interest, before you even arrive in the next location. He thinks of everyone in the party, and includes them in the planning. He has such a knowledge base, that if you find yourself wanting to experience something that wasn't planned, he is usually able to accommodate the groups' wishes.

William also stays with your group, he knows where to find the best craic. He'll guide you through your visit, and will answer all kinds of questions, and trust me, you'll have tons. William has a wealth of knowledge about the people, places and history.

If you are thinking of booking with Claddagh, don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed. Fair warning though, you'll be pining for your next visit to Ireland with ~ Claddagh Irish tours.

I have traveled to Ireland 4 times. The first two times I rented a car and toured the Island.... the last two times I traveled by tour bus... The 1st was a 32 passenger bus and this time .. .We traveled in a 16 passenger bus .... This was the best experience EVER... I researched the best small tour guide company in Ireland... William Barrett (Claddagh Irish Tours) is the best tour ever... He catered to Each Individual's interest and tailored the trip to meet their individual needs..... I will return to Ireland ... based on William's schedule... He's That Good....

William Barrett and Claddagh Tours did an amazing job of arranging our educational trip to bring American college students to learn about the richness of Irish history, culture, geography, etc. 100 years after the Easter Rising of 1916. When I return to travel with family, we will definitely book our trip through Claddagh Irish Tours. And I recommend this company to anyone. William takes the time to personalize the trip, and his knowledge of Irish history, culture, current events, etc. will enrich your experience. This is not the usual tour company. Give William Barrett and Claddagh Irish Tours a try.
